The Event


We celebrate the 40th Anniversary of Essex's first ever County Championship in 1979. We will be inviting some of the squad to come and dine with us (and play if they are up for it!) with a Q&A session hosted by BBC Radio Cricket Commentator, and President of EBCC, Sir Johnny Barran.


The President's XI has been represented by a few familair faces over the years with the likes of Ipswich Football legend, Matt Holland, Strictly's Brendan Cole, Hugh Corwell of the Stranglers, and many others from the world of showbiz.
